Skin Problems or Diseases
Skin problems or diseases refer to any condition that affects the skin’s appearance, texture, or function. There are various types of skin problems, ranging from mild to severe, and they can affect people of all ages and ethnicities. Common skin problems include acne, eczema, psoriasis and skin allergies. These conditions can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, environmental triggers, hormonal imbalances, and lifestyle habits. Ayurvedic treatments typically focus on balancing the doshas, strengthening the digestive system, and removing toxins from the body.
Acne and pimples are quite common among adolescents/teens. Ayurveda connects our inner and outer attractiveness to achieve the right balance. It is caused by pore congestion caused by excess oil generated by our own hormones.
Causes of Acne:
Ayurveda distinguishes three doshas, or mind/body types: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Disease is caused by a dosha imbalance. Acne is often caused by an imbalance in all three doshas, which is why it must be treated with many methods.
An imbalance in Vata causes poor digestion and the buildup of pollutants. Pitta imbalances influence the blood and liver, allowing for inflammation. Excess kapha, which regulates sebum production, causes clogging of the pores. The combination of poor digestion, toxin buildup, inflammation, and excessive sebum production produces the ideal environment for bacterial overgrowth, resulting in persistent acne.
Ayurveda recognizes the common signs of acne, including itching, redness, pain, and even blisters.
Treatment of Acne
The doctor evaluates each element individually to give you the optimal therapy, which may include.
Steaming helps to eliminate blockages in subtle channels or Srothas. It is not, however, advised in cases of inflammation.
Nasya therapy involves the administration of suitable Ayurvedic herbs and medicines through the nasal cavity to combat chronic acne conditions.
Virechana, also referred to as medicated purgation, involves the administration of herbal purgatives with bitter, astringent, and sweet properties to alleviate the imbalance of Pitta and Rakta (blood dhatu) in the body. This therapeutic procedure can be utilized during instances of inflammation.
Vamana treatment is the administration of herbs or drugs orally to induce vomiting. This removes Srotha blockages from the facial skin as well as the overall body.
Raktamokshana is an excellent treatment for vitiated Rakta dhatu. Raktamokshana cleanses the stagnant blood that causes pathological alterations in the body. Raktamokshana therapy includes para-surgical methods such as letting blood with the use of leeches, Prachanna Karma, and Siravyadha. These therapies increase tissue microcirculation by eliminating vitiated and stagnant blood.
Ayurveda provides a complete approach to treating acne from the source. As a result, in addition to the herbal treatment, it also prescribes dietary and lifestyle adjustments.
Psoriasis is a prevalent skin condition that commonly affects individuals between the ages of 15 to 35. It is a non-communicable and chronic ailment characterized by rapid proliferation of skin cells that typically takes a considerable amount of time. Consequently, thick red, itchy, and dry patches form as dead skin cells accumulate.
These parched patches can arise around the elbows, knees or scalp, and in most instances, they remain unnoticed. However, in severe cases, the affliction can become widespread, significantly impacting a substantial section of the body.
The specific etiology of the ailment remains undetermined. Nevertheless, proficient sources surmise that genetic predispositions and immune responses may potentially factor into its pathogenesis.
Psoriasis is characterized by an abnormal immune response, where the T-cells of the body target healthy skin cells, instigating the excessive production of skin cells. The factors conjectured to impinge upon the onset of the condition are stress, corpulence, tobacco use, climatic conditions, diminished immune capacity, and consumption of specific medications.
Psoriasis is the result of an imbalance between two vital elements of the body, specifically the “Vata” and “Kapha” doshas. This disharmony of components, coupled with toxic substances, causes inflammation on the skin through an individual’s immune system.

Eczema is an inflammatory skin disease defined by red and itchy skin, as well as papules and vesicles.
Causes & symptoms:
Although the specific aetiology of eczema is unknown, it is thought that the symptoms emerge from an overreaction of the immune system to irritants. Furthermore, inherited and environmental variables have been linked to the disease’s cause.
Oral medications must be taken in the early stages of treatment for purification. Then, medications for external application are administered. Finally, Rasayanas are offered for skin renewal and nourishment. Some of the therapies that are useful in the treatment of eczema include:
- Mridu Virechan
- Rakta Sodhana
External medication procedures include the following:
- Lepa: A paste produced from appropriate herbs is administered to the affected area.
- Parisheka: Warm oils and herbal decoctions are poured on the body to remove impurities and relax it.
- Udvarthana: This technique involves massaging the body with herbal powders and is particularly beneficial for rough and thick skin.
- Avagaha: To cure big affected parts of the body, the subject is made to sit in neck-deep warm water with therapeutic herbs in Avagaha therapy.

An allergy is an immune system condition characterized by an unfavorable reaction to a supposedly foreign chemical that is not normally damaging to the body. Allergens are things that can cause hypersensitivity in certain people and can include foods, environmental contaminants, drugs, and even situations such as temperature changes and exposure to specific weathers. As a result of allergic responses, these allergens cause the body to produce histamine.
Allergies, according to Ayurveda, are caused by an imbalance of the three Doshas. When your Doshas are out of balance, allergic responses worsen, and your body is unable to remove stored toxins owing to a weakening immune system. When this disease persists for an extended length of time, the allergy becomes chronic.
Ayurvedic remedies focus solely on addressing the underlying cause of the allergy rather than merely treating the symptom, and this distinct Ayurvedic approach is the key to achieving lifetime benefits and comprehensive relief from all ailments. Ayurveda emphasizes improving internal immunity through methods such as eating a good diet, integrating a positive lifestyle, as well as using strong herbs and undertaking rejuvenating Ayurvedic therapies.
